SIL 2016 Travel & Visa informations


Turin can easily be reached by any method and from any place, and it's the ideal base for speedily getting to all the tourist spots of the province in the comfort of vehicles and public transport.
What's more, there is plenty of information for those arriving or departing by plane, signalling the airlines and the connections to and from Turin's International Airport, or those going by train or bus, providing a complete overview of the stations, bus stations and every season's timetables of all the lines.


All foreigners intending to enter Italy must provide the documentation required to justify the reasons and duration of their stay as well as, in some prescribed cases, the availability of adequate economic means and lodging.
In some cases you need a visa, application for which can be made at the Italian Diplomatic and Consular Representations in your country of residence.
